This YouTube video was made by the fine folks at Adventure Central Newfoundland back in 2009…

So, almost 12 years have passed, and I’m still doing the same thing. Is that good? Is that bad? Hmmm. I guess we can determine that I am not a quitter! Persistent, or stubborn? Sure. Family traits are hard to swerve around.

The thing is, I have been trying my damnedest to make my small business a successful venture since 2002. I am still not really successful, although my team and I have come a long way since then, especially with the addition of Norton’s Cove Café. I love my work. I love making artwork, I love the paperwork, I love getting new products in at the shop, I love trying all the new things to eat at the Café, and I love writing and re-writing my business plan to make room for new developments. I love meeting people in my studio, and I really love seeing my community support this small business.

I have reapplied to ACOA to help finance my Norton’s Cove Rooms project, and I definitely won’t be able to go ahead with that part of my business plan without their assistance. My fingers, toes, and eyes are crossed while I await their response.

I am fully invested in Norton’s Cove. If I fail, I will have nothing to show for the past 19 years of work. So failing isn’t an option. And the Rooms @ Norton’s Cove is THE bit of the plan that’s going to bring it all together. IF I can raise the funds to get it built this year. Cross your fingers for me, won’t you?
